Does anyone use Toshimi Taki's charts & XLS data #5722696 - 03/09/13 05:34 PM
I came across Taki's double star data here. His DSO charts are handy for field use on dewy nights because one can always print a new chart if a page gets clammy. However, there are a few mis-identifications here & there. Has anyone used his double star material (downloadable free) and care to comment?

I have been using Mr Toshimi's charts and data tables to observe double stars during the last year. I like to work constellation by constellation so I prefer this to the Cambridge double stars atlas (its list is RA sorted) which I also own.
I am sorting the data the way I like them in Excel. Then I add comments taken from the book "Double stars for small telescopes" and there I go...
